Why Do I Get Horny When Im High?

Some people get horny when they’re high, while others find themselves more relaxed and ready for sleep. It all depends on how your body reacts to marijuana.

Marijuana is made up of hundreds of different chemicals called cannabinoids. The two most prominent cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is responsible for getting you high, and cannabidiol (CBD), which has been shown to have some anxiety-reducing effects. Other cannabinoids include cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabichromene (CBC).

When you smoke or otherwise ingest cannabis, it causes your body to produce its own natural cannabinoids, which then interact with receptors in the brain that control things like pleasure and pain sensations.

Because THC binds directly to these receptors and mimics their action, it can cause feelings of euphoria and relaxation — among other things. But CBD doesn’t bind directly with these receptors, so it doesn’t produce any psychoactive effects. Instead, it appears to work by influencing the activity of other neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine — two chemicals that are thought to be involved in mood regulation.
